Façade Improvement Grant Program

The City of Princeton Economic Development Corporation Façade Improvement Matching Incentive Grant Program provides a dollar-for-dollar match in the form of a reimbursement up to a maximum of 10,000 for eligible improvements to facades in the City of Princeton.

Participants are eligible for up to one incentive per 12 month period from completion of previous project under this program, if applicable. Applicants who meet the $10,000 match threshold are eligible for waiver of building permit fees.

Only building permit fees which are part of the incentive application will be waived. Building permit fees for improvements not related to the incentive application and from the street, parking area, or public park are not eligible for fee waiver.
